I got this idea from hearing about the Commonwealth Games and the Gay Games.
These are olympic-type events that cater to a certain demographic, so maybe we could have an olympics of our own, just for us vegans? Though I think I read that the Gay Games does not restrict heterosexuals from competing.
I understand that there wouldn't be many competitors, since vegans are such a tiny percentage of the population, and that certain countries would be overrepresented (eg. England, USA, Israel, Netherlands would probably have more vegans than, say, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Poland)
We would have it so that there wouldn't be a minimum standard of difficulty. For example, the gymnasts wouldn't have to have completed Level 10 in order to compete. If the gymnast was just at Level 4 or Level 6, they would be allowed to come. Heck, so few competitors would show up for the event that I'd even allow Level 1's!
Since it would occur in one city, most athletes would probably not have the money for plane tickets to attend, so we could start up a charity to raise money to help pay for the athlete's hotel bill and plane tickets. On the other hand, this would probably be a bad idea, because not only would we probably not get many donations, and the money we raise would probably do the animals more good if we spent it on spaying or on copies of "Why Vegan?" booklets.
We'd also probably have a disproportionately high number of cyclists and an underrepresentation of target shooters/biathlon people. That is just my guess though.
Discuss the pros and cons of this idea.
